My Sweet Baby Book Eater

This is how Buddy gets me up in the morning. He starts eating a book or a magazine and I instantly jump up and feed him. They’ve trained me better than I’ve trained them.

Holiday cleaning begins tomorrow! After a morning interview with the current organist and choir master of Grace Church.

  1. Glad it’s not only my kitty that does that! And now he’s teaching his brother!
    Gotta admit that it’s a perfect way to get me outta bed!

  2. It appears from the stamp on the bottom of the book that it may be from a library. Does Buddy have enough money in his piggy bank to pay the fine for the book he has tasted?
    I had a cat who would bite any photos I left lying around. Just one simple bite that would leave two fang holes, almost like a train conductor punching a ticket.
    One last thing… The frog in the bowl of cat toys in the background? I have one, too — I mean MY CAT does.

  3. Veets use to lick and bite photos, too!! And that’s so funny you recognize the frog. That was a gift for my cats from a friend. But I always wondered what it was with photos and Veets.

    And yes, it’s a library book, but a former library book. No fines, thank god.
